In via email today!

Since I'm out of the country, they decided to send their acceptance packet via email as well. I was so hoping to get some scholarship information, but nothing yet. I suppose I should start applying for the scholarship with the March 1st deadline.

Congrats...does acceptance emails to out of country applicants translate to calls today for in-country applicants i wonder?


From what I've been noticing, BU calls people two days in a row and then no more the rest of the week. Tuesday and Wednesday had calls. :cry:

In earlier this week! Forgot to post since the call went to my parents' phone.

Too bad I already booked train from DC/hotel/flight home to do a self-guided tour a few weeks ago and can't come to the ASD now.

BU,

I really need to hear from you soon. This is just getting ridiculous. Teasing is no longer a fad, now it's torture. This is all.

P.S. you have one week before i start tweeting formidable things.

Just got the call! Had to let it go to VM as I was talking to my boss. She (the assistant dean) said the official admittance packet would arrive in a couple of days.

Congrats to all the admits! Makes for a good Friday. Have any of those waitlisted done anything besides sign up for the WL email? Planning to write an LOCI/visit campus? I contacted someone whose stats for last year's cycle showed WL'ed and then admitted. He said he got a random email in March asking if he was still interested and then got admitted...and then got a $25K scholarship! Not sure about his numbers, but shows there is hope.

Every Thursday and Friday I put my phone on my desk in class and wait for a Boston area code to pop up, and every Thursday and Friday I am disappointed. C'mon, Beantown - we just might be made for each other.

I hand delivered a LOCI and a recommendation lol...I happened to be visiting the area. Still super bitter about not being accepted because I thought I'd get in, but I'd still go if I got a good offer.

Does anyone know if BU has a decision appeal process? I asked in an email that I recently sent out and was blatantly ignored.

I just got a call this afternoon and I'm in through voice mail. haha.

When do they give out any potential scholarship info? She did not mention anything about that so should I assume I got nothing?

No. She didn't mention anything about it to me in my voicemail and I had scholarship info in my acceptance packet. Some people have gotten theirs later. It sort of seems like there isn't much rhyme or reason to BU's scholarship process.

Anybody know how long scholarship letters might come after the admit packet? If nada could you negotiate anything because of $$ at WUSTL?

Can you tell us more about the housing stipend? Is it for on-campus or off-campus? Is it for all 3 years? Any details would be much appreciated. Thanks!
